Our skin is exposed to damaging and harmful influences every day. We need sunlight and its healing powers but too much of anything can be harmful and your skin’s absorption of too much ultraviolet light is no exception to that rule. Long term sun exposure can leave the skin depleted of valuable nutrients and lacking the natural, healthy glow of a youthful appearance.
Exfoliation and Healing Nutrients
Microdermabrasion can help restore the skin’s luster by removing the damaged skin cells and allowing the younger, healthier layers to replenish the surrounding skin tissue with healing nutrients.
Microdermabrasion is a non-invasive procedure that takes about thirty minutes. There is no recovery time and virtually no side effects so it can be done during a lunch break from work! Classic microdermabrasion employs non-allergenic crystals. The procedure simply exfoliates dead cells from your skin’s surface making it risk-free since there are no harsh chemicals that could cause a bad reaction. The result…the emergence of a fresh layer of healthy skin cells which provides a more youthful glow.
This new layer of skin will initially be more sensitive so extra care and protection will be essential. Sunscreen is a very important tool in keeping your skin sun-protected and application of moisturizers and creams will provide hydration and nourishment to the new skin. Using unscented lotions will prevent the risk of any unnecessary skin irritation.
Microdermabrasion with a Diamond Tip Wand
Dr. Alice Cohen’s office offers a microdermabrasion treatment called the SilkPeel Dermal infusion®. This treatment differs from classic microdermabrasion in that SilkPeel utilizes diamond tips (instead of aluminum crystals) for exfoliation and simultaneously delivers special serums designed to treat specific skin conditions such as:
- Oily, Acne Prone Skin
- Superficial Wrinkles
- Surface Sun spots
- Skin Damaged from free radicals
All these skin problems can be treated by unique SilkPeel® formulations. These specialized serums increase the effectiveness of your treatment by infusing vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants into deeper skin layers.
Another great benefit of the SilkPeel® is that it can be used on many areas of the body. Whereas typical microdermabrasion is primarily a facial treatment, a SilkPeel® can be performed on the face, neck, chest, hands, feet, and many other places, including the more sensitive skin near your eyes and lips.
Here is what one of our Lancaster area patients say about the SilkPeel®
“The SilkPeel® was relaxing and my skin feels great…so soft”
Thanks, Dr. Cohen!” —Kathy B.
Overall, microdermabrasion procedures offer the most ease and favorable recovery when compared to other non-invasive techniques for surface skin removal. Through the powerful yet gentle combination of exfoliation, pore cleansing and dermal infusion, Dr. Cohen’s SilkPeel® will leave your skin with a fresh and vibrant appearance. Results of a SilkPeel are immediately visible. The skin will feel smoother, look healthier, and appear fresher. The treated area will feel exceptionally clean, soft, and radiant but additional benefits will be seen in the days to come as the absorbed solutions begin to work within the deep layers of the skin.
